Daddy’s Little Girl.

Valentine’s Day…what a great day to get married! For Lisa and John, it was over a year and a half of meticulous planning before the day finally arrived. What a great success it was. I really enjoyed getting to know them. And I really got a kick out of Lisa’s Dad Steve. He invited me to his home for wine and cheese last year during the planning process. He even invited me to join him for breakfast on another day. What a cool guy. So cool, that he surprised his daughter by arranging for singers from Opera San Jose to sing a few songs during the dinner. It was so beautiful and so romantic. The 150 guests who came to the Sainte Claire Hotel in downtown San Jose to celebrate with Lisa and John had a great time.It was a fun, lively crowd that danced to a great variety of music. Here are some special songs that Lisa and John picked:

First Dance: “Sway” – Michael Bublé
Father-Daughter Dance: “Daddy’s Little Girl” – Al Martino
Groom-Mother Dance: “Into The Mystic” – Van Morrison
Cake-Cutting Song: “Sugar-Sugar” – The Archies
Farewell Dance: “The Way You Look Tonight” – Michael Bublé
What a night. From Steve’s heart-felt welcome speech and the perfectly-choreographed First Dance to the fun bubble-blowing finale, it was a night to remember for all…especially for the Father of the Bride.

Aloha!

It’s 1:00am and I should be in bed right now but I just got back from an awesome wedding reception and wanted to write about it. What a fun night! 200 people celebrated at Hotel Sainte Claire in Downtown San Jose last night at Maureen and Alex’s Wedding Reception. This was a super-fun crowd with many guests representing Santa Clara University, San Jose State, and The University of Pacific.Up-and-coming local artist Ryan Auffenberg ( a close friend of the groom) performed during the dinner. The Groom joined him to sing a song that he personally wrote for his new wife. It was very romantic.

Since Maureen is from Hawaii, she and Alex presented all of the bridal party members with a Lei as they came in during the introductions. Their wedding favors were yummy Hawaiian Cookies AND an Oral B Toothbrush. (Alex is a Dentist) I love it!! This was a huge dancing crowd and they boogied to Disco, Motown, 80′s, and Current music. The guests also enjoyed a special hula-dance presentation by the Bride’s Cousin. What a SUPER-FUN night! I am pooped! And now I will go to bed!
